Welcome to LA Johnny!
I’m John Burke, a certified arborist, licensed landscape architect, and expert in southern Californian trees. I’ve worked with many developers,
municipalities, and school districts on a variety of projects, and I can tell you the most expensive mistake I often see is failing to get tree risk assessments and reports done early. When you know what your plan and requirements regarding trees are from the start, your whole project benefits.
I’m more than a consulting arborist; I use my multi-faceted knowledge and experience to become an integral part of your landscape design team and save you time and money on your project.
